Gotta go fast
All good things must come to an end, and that’s the case with SEGA’s Speed Strats video series for Sonic Origins. Today marks the final episode in the series, and this one focuses on speedrunning tactics in general.
Here’s what you can expect to see covered in today’s episode.
All Titles - To master speedrunning in Sonic Origins, players can perform precisely-timed loop jumps, create the perfect Spin Dash and ace Badnik Bouncing.
Sonic 1 - Find the secret platforms in Labyrinth Zone Act 1 and Spring Yard Zone: Act 1 to skip good portions of both stages.
Sonic CD - Players can use the super-peel out feature to their advantage in Metallic Madness: Act 2 and determine the best way to take on the Egg Bubble boss fight as Tails in Tidal Tempest: Act 3.
Sonic 2 - Release Spin Dash in the final battle on the Death Egg to get in some easy hits and use the oil in Oil Ocean Zone to run under the level to save time.
Sonic 3 & Knuckles - Sonic fans can use the Insta Shield to find secret paths and take out bosses quickly, or utilize the Spin Dash feature in Hydro City Zone Act 2 to skip a large portion of the Zone.
